China Glaze Angel Wings Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Angel Wings Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicate gold dust glitter.” It consists of fine gold glitter with what looks to be some holographic glitter, too–there are little prisms of color throughout that dance and catch the light. All of the glitters are suspended in a clear base. Ozotic #904 has a different texture and isn’t holographic–it just had a (somewhat) familiar look at a glance. China Glaze I’m Not Lion has a similar texture and composition–it’s just a lighter, paler gold. Milani 3D is similar, as it has holographic glitter along with gold shimmer, but it’s more opaque and the gold comes from the shimmer/base color.

China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich berry red creme.” It’s a deep red–perhaps with a hint of berry–that for all its darkness, remains dark and almost muted, which is interesting to see in a shade so clearly red. Essie Size Matters is similar. Dior Graphic Berry is more berry-colored. China Glaze City Siren is a touch darker.

China Glaze Winter Holly Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Winter Holly Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “gold-flecked dazzling green glitter.” It’s a mix of fine gold and emerald green glitter suspended in a clear base. When applied, there appears to be a few flecks of other colors as well, but it is predominantly gold and green glitter particles. I couldn’t think of a dupe (but we’re definitely building up the glitter polish gallery!). Even when it’s layered over black, it’s quite different compared to last year’s Glittering Garland.  It seems simple at first, but depending on the breadth of your glitter polish stash, comes across as more complex when applied.

China Glaze It’s a Trap-eze Nail Lacquer

China Glaze It’s a Trap-eze Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “white cream base with multi-glitter.” It has a cool-toned, milky white base with large, hexagon-shaped glitter in pink, light-medium blue, yellow, green, orange, and white, along with smaller glitter in the same colors. I don’t know of any dupes at this time, but I’d love to hear from any of you that may! The whole combination reminds me of confetti birthday cake.
